1/2 cup granulated monk fruit*
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt

3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup chopped strawberries
3 tablespoon ghee, melted or vegan butter
1/4 cup coconut milk

1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 lemon, zested

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.  In a large bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
  3. Use a rubber spatula to fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in ¼-cup increments.
    once combined, carefully fold in the strawberries. Spoon the batter evenly into the paper liners.
  4. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Remove the muffins from the oven and transfer to a rack and allow to cool in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, add all of the glaze ingredients to a bowl and mix together with a spoon. If you want the glaze a little thicker, simply add another tablepsoon or so of the powdered sweetener.

  7. Drizzle each muffin with the glaze and lemon zest before serving. If leftovers, store in an airtight container. Will last up to 1 week.
